CHARLOTTE, N.C.–Rick Robinson, president of Spring Air International, has been elected to the board of directors of the Specialty Sleep Association.
Dedicated to promoting innovation among specialty mattresses, SSA has been active in developing environmental and safety standards for bedding products. Included in this effort is the association’s three-level certification seal and product-labeling program for manufacturers and retailers. In accepting his place on the board, Robinson noted that Spring Air has developed its Back Supporter mattress line to meet the criteria of SSA’s environmental and safety program.
A veteran of the mattress industry, Robinson became Spring Air’s president in 2009, after Ed Bates, owner of one of the company’s factories, acquired Spring Air’s intellectual property and relaunched it as Spring Air International.
